? >> politically correct? i appear to be. >> president obama's economic plan hasn't worked among african-americans. when you voted for him, 12.7 unemployment. december of 2012, a month after you voted for him again, 14% unemployment. up. okay. hasn't worked. income, black income $32,000 compared to white 55,000. gone down under president obama. hasn't worked. so, you basically said to yourself i'm still going to support the guy even though his economic policies haven't worked for african-americans and pretty much anyone else. >> well, you have only seen me as an african-american, bill, that troubles me. i'm an american. >> bill: ill know that you cited that in some of your criticisms. you said and correct me if i am wrong, that the disengagement of the republican party from the minority community, blacks and hispanics troubled you. >> the economic situation in the country has improved but not enough. >> bill: not for african-americans. not for minorities. >> i'm not speaking as an african-american. i will come to the minority part of my criticism in a moment. but, we have seen a doubling
playbook. blame president obama for the polarized political climate zoosh i think instead of trying to bring people together was a manifesto for, hey, it's my way or the highway. i don't think that's necessarily productive. >> we will get a reality check on the grand ole party's grand ole problems next on "now." excuse me, sir i'm gonna have to ask you to power down your little word game. i think your friends will understand. oh no, it's actually my geico app...see? ...i just uh paid my bill. did you really? from the plane? yeah, i can manage my policy, get roadside assistance, pretty much access geico 24/7. sounds a little too good to be true sir. i'll believe that when pigs fly. ok, did she seriously just say that? geico. just click away with our free mobile app. >> what do you think the party must do better? where do we go in the future? this is your chance to make your voice heard, and we're listening. >> as the rnc begins its annual winter meeting in charlotte, chairman is soliciting ideas on how to renew, grow, and win. mretco reports that he will tell attendees tomorrow that
of labor and ignite a powerful political force, which helped put president obama in the white house twice. let's turn to leo gerard, president of the united steelworkers international organization. mr. gerard good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here. >> is this an issue that is going to help the labor force in this country? if you have 11 million workers come out of the shadows -- and let's face it, well over in the 90% have got to be, they're not all felons is the point i'm making. how is this going to help the labor movement in this country? >> look, these are primarily good people that came to america in search of the american dream, in search of a better standard of living. if you go back to the days of when we were told about nafta, we were told nafta would solve the immigration issue from mexico, but in reality what it did is depress mexican wages, depress mexican opportunity. and those people came here in search of a better life. so what we've been fighting, the labor movement has been fighting for proper immigration reform now for going on almost 20 years. and i think
the president shirks thinking more of a conquest than political compromise. >> former congressman barney frank on the new republican messaging on failed conservative ideas. >>> plus, reverend jesse jackson on the latest republican effort to disenfranchise minority voters. >>> and call the whambulance. the obama-clinton interview has righties spewing conservative conspiracy theory nonsense. >> i'd like to know did she pass out and hit her head? was she pushed? >> i'll get to the bottom of all the whining with jonathan alter. >> there was no follow-up. >> good to have you with us folks. thanks for watching. republicans are waking up to the realities of a center left country. they need to partner with the democrats on immigration reform, or basically be left in the dust. this is just one of many issues. senator chuck schumer new york led seven of his senate colleagues in announcing a bipartisan plan for immigration reform today. they want the proposal to be pushed through the senate this spring. >> for the first time ever, there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in suppor
president obama rather get a deal done on immigration or let the issue fester who the republicans continue to get run at the polls by latino voters? this is "hardball," the place for politics. hey, buddy? oh, hey, flo. you want to see something cool? snapshot, from progressive. my insurance company told me not to talk to people like you. you always do what they tell you? no... try it, and see what your good driving can save you. you don't even have to switch. unless you're scared. i'm not scared, it's... you know we can still see you. no, you can't. pretty sure we can... try snapshot today -- no pressure. >>> massachusetts governor duvall patrick has named a place holder to fill the senate seat of john terry. he'd be the second african-american in the senate. tim scott of south carolina, another appointee is the other. it's the first time in history that two african-americans have served in the senate at the same time. in selecting cowan, governor patrick passed over former congressman barney frank who openly lobbied for the job. cowan will serve until april 30th when massachusetts voters
there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path
't touch. this political negligence suggests that obama has chosen to ignore negative budget projections, credit downgrades, falling revenues and perpetual increases in mandatory spending. instead, the president is teeing up partisan legislative battles with republicans in hopes of -- but as a measurement of the president's seriousness, his second inaugural address can only be seen as a grand failure that missed yet another historic opportunity to call americans together in the name of shared sacrifice. and richard haass, there is another opportunity, which would be the state of the union which i'm sort of banking on. >> traditionally inaugurals are the poetry, and then the state of the union becomes the prose. and the president did not prepare for educate the american people about some of the tough decisions to come, particularly on medicare and medicaid. so the real question going forward for the state of the union is whether he essentially addresses that. and whether he -- because we've still got more than, i think, more than $2 trillion in serious cuts to be made to entitlements over

political advantage over the obama administration, over hillary clinton in particular over the attack in benghazi, what ended up looming unexpectedly large over these proceedings was how benghazi is not an unprecedented thing. the state department has had its personnel and its facilities in danger and facing different kinds of attack over and over and over and over again for decades all over the world. and the attempted political acrimony of today's hearing ended up kind of dead-ending today whenever secretary clinton would bring back what congress does not see as a priority does not see the safety that work at the state department and the resources to ensure that safety. and yes, there is a political agenda to be driven, always, always. but in terms of steps necessary to protect people, so far hillary clinton made the case today that congress has been against it, specifically right now, members of the republican-controlled house have been against it. >> we have asked the congress to help us real locate funds. the senate has given us that authority. we don't yet have it from the house
and in the obama administration for political reasons hav they have not wanteo release that regulation. so eve on youth and has gone as a nonprofit out to try to digitize the vital records, make that accessible to driver's license issuing agencies, and any other agency that needs it. it's the one piece of real id that has not come in well. and the states have complained that it is a cost issue. and i would love to hear your response to the issue of the cost of eve. because her us on the 9/11 commission's ipod, checking against that fraud of the birth certificate is one of the most vital things you can do is to check the vital records. he has done a tremendous job in digitizing those records, the ones i've gotten have been tremendous. what exactly are the issues with the states in terms of not implementing that these are real id? >> well, let me pashtun exactly. i'll just give you a delaware perspective of eve. and i think was alluded to before, it is extreme complicated where you have, we have a known number of jurisdictions issuing driver's license. there so many different levels of technolog
there is a risk that president obama wastes his political capital in the view of most americans? i mean, the rest of the world is here issing, climate change and carpet emissions in the inaugural speech but not what most americans seem most to care about. it's usually jobs and growth. >> it's difficult for me to analyze that, from a political perspective, but i will say this. i think what will be important here for investors, for taxpayer, for the american people generally, and i think even for folks around the world is how we deal with these issues, the sequences of them and if they see us working on tax reform, getting a bipartisan agreement there, working on reducing spending in a bipartisan way, i think the sequential of that before we get -- maybe get to some other issues might help a lot. >> senator, always good talk to you. i imagine we will talk a lot over the next few months. thanks again. >> thanks so much. >>> and we are keeping an eye on shares of netflix after reading on both the top and bottom line notice fourth quarter, shares on tack for their largest intraday gain on record. we w
and may have been reacting to cbs news political director john dickerson, who said president obama should "go for the throat." republicans are now more paranoid than ever. speaker boehner is basically whining like a coach who's had the score run up on him. i mean, boehner has a little less swagger than he did two years ago when he took over the house with this wave of tea party republicans, but what a difference a couple of years makes. president obama is not the only one who benefits from contrasting himself with the republican party. governors like chris christie and bobby jindal take occasional shots at their own party and look almost mainstream by comparison. for the record, white house press secretary jay carney said today that the president believes a strong two-party system is the foundation of our democracy. let's bring in msnbc political analyst richard wolffe and vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. richard, great to have you on always. >> thanks, ed. >> no one, including president obama, has the power to shove the gop into the dustbin of history unless they of cour
. later, president obama vows action on climate change. what can realistically be done in this political environment? we will ask national journal reporter coral davenport. we will be right back. >> ♪ ♪ [video clip] >> we have created a platform that we call a digital feedback system. a main component of the platform are an integral sensors that turns on when it's all it-- when you swallow it. it collects information about the medicines that you take and your heart rate and body rate and temperature. a wellness matrix. then it communicates via radio with a cell phone that you carry. they process the data and send it back to you as an application that can help you manage your health. >> we are at a point where we have had all these incremental and amazing changes over the last five years. now we are poised to really make some great leaps in complex diseases. our understanding of cancer in the last five years has forced the last 25. the next 10 years will really take us through some amazing advances. >> the latest advances in health technology from the international consumer electronic
political realignment underway in this country. and wliel obama realigns, the republicans are in decline. and they really have three choices. one of which they've seenl to have already gotten rid of. secondly, they can destabilize the economy. that's what they tried to do for years moving up toward the 2012 election. it didn't work. but i think they might try it again. paul ryan on meet the press last sunday sounded very interesting in letting the sequestration go into effect, which we saw today would have bad effects on the economy. third, in lincoln's phase, they could disenthrall themselves. but when you look at what happened to marco rubio in the last day, senator david vitter of louisiana called him amazingly naive. i think the republican party is trapped between what it has to do to succeed and survive and its tea party elements which are going to ghand purity. >> now when you look at cynthia, the fact that american people say clearly that any number opposed support the president's agenda, 53% support same-sex marriage, 62% support a path to citizenship for immigrants. 80% say clim

is meaningless in politics. i chicago magazine article from 2006 in which barack obama was quoted in 2004 saying he wouldn't run and in 2006 saying he had no intention of running for president. >> the thing that i would be excited about is that hillary clinton would be the perfect democrat to move the health care pendulum even further where most americans want it to go. she is an advocate of universal health care, if you can get it there, which i think would be absolutely the best thing for the country. here she is at a town hall when she was asked about her future plans. this is interesting. >> i do want to see more women compete for the highest positions in their countries. and i will do what i can, whether or not it is up to me, to make a decision on my own future. i right now am not inclined to do that. but i will do everything i can to make sure that women compete at the highest levels not only in the united states, but around the world. >> you know, the big issue right now for the president is getting immigration reform passed. >> right. >> that was the issue that somewhat became problemat
with the political postscript and it started with president obama's second inauguration and was also highlighted by secretary of hillary clinton's testimony on benghazi and senator john kerry's confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state. >> progress does not compel us to settle centuries long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk and decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i would take office as secretary proud that the senate is in my blood. but equally proud that so, too, is the foreign service. >> senator kerry referring there to his father serving as a diplomat. so he grew up as a child of a diplomat. as for president obama's remark there aiming to get congress to find some common ground, the senate last night approved changes to the filibu
, and one thing that i say to people because i think it helps them understand, i say look, in politics and democracy sometimes you win elections sometimes you lose elections. i work very hard but i lost and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes. >> clinton's last day as secretary of state is this friday february 1st. >> the deep freeze across the country is turning more dangerous as the winter storm hits the midwest hard. in eastern iowa the ice is coating roads sending dozens of cars right off. >> in wisconsin you can see the thick snow is falling making it hard for drivers to see and navigate the streets. let's check in with maria molina. she is tracking the storm as it moves east. >> the storm not over with just yet heading out over the northeast. already producing snow across pennsylvania and new york. even freezing rain across mid atlantic early this morning expecting it to be producing travel headaches. there is a little bit of warm air behind it. you will be seeing above that winter weather over to rains across most of the northeast including plac
of the latino vote in american politics than nevada. 2010, harry reid won 69% of latinos in his race against sharron angle. two years later, obama won that vote matching what he received nationwide. they make up 27% of the state's population overall, 19% of the actual voting electorate. critics also charge the president though is making a political point by flying nine hours to make this immigration speech. five there, four on the way back. but in some ways he's returning to del sol high school where he was met with huge crowds during his 2008 campaign, a day after the group of senators unveiled their new plan for dealing with roughly 11 million undocumented people living in this country. this trip, by the way, is all about the white house saying hey, we made a campaign promise. and we're going to go to places that they made this campaign promise to show we're trying to fulfill it. >> we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so gre
one week after president obama called immigration reform a top priority, the issue was cornering momentum in a rare show of bipartisan support. >> there is more political risk in opposing immigration reform began supporting it. >> this is consistent with their country's tradition of being a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. >> eight leading republican and democratic senators are proposing an immigration overhaul. it would create a path to a system -- path to citizenship. reform the legal immigration system to keep families together, " ward green cards to immigrants who obtain advanced degrees at american universities. allow more low-skilled workers to enter the country for hard to fill jobs. >> there is no reason to delay. >> the proposal mirrors the president's priorities. >> the very important effort is about engaging the american people. >> advocates are pressuring lawmakers to act. >> we now the momentum is on our side. >> that momentum comes after a tough reaction -- election reality. he won more than 70% of the latino vote. even with bipartisan support, passing the
that president obama is not looking to moderate and move to the middle but is instead looking for a political fight. >> i decided not to comment between the election and the inauguration because i wanted to see what kind of president we're looking at here? what kind of path and trajectory he was putting his administration on. all of the statements and all of the comments lead me to believe he is thinking more of a political conquest than political compromise. and that is my concern. jon: ryan also focused on the nation's fiscal crisis saying only significant spending cuts, not tax reform, will solve the deficit problem. that is something is he thinks the president is missing. >> i don't think that the president thinks we actually have a fiscal crisis. he has been reportedly saying to our leaders we don't have a spending problem, we have a health care problem. that leads me to conclude he thinks we ought to have more government-run health care and rationing. i don't think that is going to work. jon: let's get back to karl rove. karl, what about his thoughts on a president bent on conquest? >>
